Zyloware Expands to Canada


PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – Zyloware Eyewear has announced the expansion of the company into Canada with the opening of the subsidiary Zyloware Eyewear Canada ULC. The company has appointed Sandra Laramee as its national sales director for Canada.

“After carefully reviewing the territory, our team has selected the brands and styles best suited for the Canadian market,” said Christopher Shyer, president of Zyloware. “We are especially eager to start working directly with the Canadian optometrists that have been purchasing our frames for years.”

For over 50 years, Zyloware has served the Canadian market with their brands, including Sophia Loren, Stetson, Randy Jackson, Daisy Fuentes, Invincilites, Project Runway and Red Lotus, through a distribution agreement with Opal Optical, based in Mississauga, Ont. Effective immediately, Zyloware Canada will begin selling these brands directly in Ontario, with plans to go nationwide. Infinity Optical will continue distribution of the Zyloware’s MaxStudio.com and Via Spiga brands in Canada. All of the products available for the selected brands on www.zyloware.com are available to the Canadian market now.

“Since we have moved to our state-of-the-art facility in Port Chester three years ago, we have been able to grow and prosper,” added James Shyer, chief operating officer of Zyloware. “We are now prepared to expand with excellent service. What makes this all possible is the commitment and generosity from our customers.”

Laramee has 30 years of experience in the optical industry. According to Zyloware, Laramee has a client-focused attitude and maintains her relationships through her excellent guidance and support. Her high energy level, professionalism, corporate leadership skills and charisma will make her an integral part of Zylowareʼs expansion into the Canadian market, the company said. Laramee has been tasked with building Zyloware Canada’s sales force.
